Make-or-buy to secure know-how and make the cost structure more flexible!

Economic cycles and acute cost pressure repeatedly lead to spontaneous outsourcing decisions with far-reaching consequences:

  • Due to the decline in volume, the optimal operating point of production is abandoned
  • As a result, productivity falls or production/unit costs rise significantly and the result is burdened
  • Know-how-relevant volumes are outsourced to suppliers, thus weakening the competitive position

These topics are currently very relevant again. Today, as in 2009, we again recognize the relevance of a strategically and economically sound make-or-buy decision. The main objectives here are to retain strategically relevant know-how and make the cost structure more flexible.

Realizing unused potential

We would like to give you suggestions and impulses on how make-or-buy processes should proceed and which methodical approach makes sense:

  • Strategic make-or-buy decision?
  • Make-or-buy in the life cycle?
  • Make-or-buy decision cases?
  • Models for outsourcing production volumes?

We would be pleased to introduce you to our TMG Inventory Management Suite for the sustainable reduction of inventories in a personal meeting.
